A fabulous rare Victorian sterling and enamel souvenir pin from New Orleans Mardi Gras celebration.

The antique pin has a wonderful hand painted enamel of a masked woman wearing a large hat and purple, green and gold cape-colors of the Mardi Gras*.

Very precisely executed, the painted enamel is in the shape of a shield framed with a finely detailed border and an American eagle at the top.

The pin is in excellent condition, no damage or wear, the enamel is very clean.

Measures 7/8" by 1&1/8", it has the old C clasp and pin stem that exceeds the length of the pin, a testament to its age.

Marked sterling on the back, there is the remnants of a watch hook that was removed.

A great piece of history, this is a rare Mardi Gras souvenir piece c1870s.
